Finally -- picture yourself seeing it Thursday-Sunday, July 9-12 or 16-19!

Optimist Theatre's FREE Shakespeare in the Park opens this year's production, Macbeth, tonight on the campus of Alverno College.
I'm sending out lots of energy to friends and acquaintances who are involved with the show, both on-stage and behind-the-scenes. It takes so many people to bring a project like this to the audience. And it comes to you FREE!
Reserved seats have all been reserved, but I understand that many walk-ins are able to get seats, and there is lawn seating.
Follow the link above for all the details. The show runs this weekend and next, Thursday-Sunday at 8 pm each night.
